Athletic Trainers are healthcare professionals with many talents - including being incredibly Twitter savvy. We compiled some of the best athletic training tweets from this January for your retweeting pleasure.
AT Twitter kicked off 2019 with some wise New Years Resolutions…

…and celebrated the connections athletic trainers make with their athletes.
We learned the ABCs of athletic training…
…and used gifs to describe #ATLife.
ATs took to Twitter to remind us all about the value of the profession…
…along with showing off their eye for aesthetically pleasing (and on brand) desk arrangements:
Other Athletic Trainers will understand this; when you get flowers from your awesome team parents, you find a cooler or bottle to put them in so you can display them proudly on your desk 😊 #SSAT #AT4ALL #VanceFam #LoveMyTeam pic.twitter.com/KAZ2Jco1sG— Margo Long, LAT, ATC (@VanceTough) January 28, 2019
@Lego_ATC continued to be one of the greatest corners of the internet:
Athletic trainers took the latest memes and Twitter trends and made them their own.
Hello I’m an Athletic Trainer. You may know me from my greatest hits including: “No I don’t have the magical pain-relieving tape”, “Yes Rehab is done in the morning before school”, and “You don’t like to see me busy during a game, because busy=injured athletes normally” #AT4ALL https://t.co/TQkiiK6bOh— Mike Hopper, MS, ATC (@mnhopper1s) January 22, 2019
Probably most importantly, a great group of athletic trainers from around the country gathered in Texas in January for the annual NATA Joint Committee Meeting to collaborate and brainstorm about the future of the athletic training profession. If you missed it, don’t worry! The ATs in attendance took to Twitter to inform and motivate the rest of us on how to “own your impact” as an athletic trainer:
I spent the past 3 days surrounded by leaders! Joint Committee Meeting was inspiring! To the AT who ask what is the association doing for me...I challenge u to volunteer! You will witness the incredible work we are doing. Have a seat at the table! #jcm2019 #iLEAD2019 #ATimpact pic.twitter.com/YVPqaTkqnD— CeCi (@talklisteninsp) January 28, 2019
What does @NATA1950 do for you? For 2018-19, membership dues helped provide $568,454 in Legislative Grants to assist state legislative initiatives, promote and PROTECT the practice of athletic training in 37 states. #JCM2019 #ATsAreHealthCare pic.twitter.com/61xfF2ok7Q— SEATA (@SEATA9) January 25, 2019
There are two types of people. People who have committed to lifelong learning, and people who obtain CEUs simply to satisfy the BOC and keep their certification. Those are two drastically different approaches - @torylindley when speaking of maintaining competence as ATs #JCM2019— IdahoATA (@idahoata) January 26, 2019
.This totally describes @NATA1950 @MAATAD5 BOD; committees & state associations and so many more that they cannot be all listed. Ordinary ATs with a phenomenal determination to move the profession forward. #ATImpact #athletictraining #leadership #JCM2019 https://t.co/oLcqrz0g82— ND Athletic Trainers' Association (@NoDakATA) January 29, 2019
